What doc prescribed: If this was prescribed, the dose the doctor wants you to take is on the prescription, and your pharmacist can further explain how to use it. If it was not prescribed, then ZERO would be the right dose for you. These are not questions anyone should be asking anyone other than the prescriber and their pharmacist. Strangers who do not know your health history are not the best source of information.

2 days: Oxycodone has a half life of about 4-5 hours so it is essentially gone within 36-48 hours of the last use of a short acting oxycodone preparation and perhaps 12 hours later after Oxycontin use. Withdrawal will take significantly longer to resolve.Peaking in 2-3 days. The urine tox should be negative in 4-5 days.

Confusing?: You need to re-ask your question. Do you mean how often should it be taken? (every 4-6 hours). How much should you take at a time? (exactly the amount your doctor prescribes).

More insufflation?: And then more insufflation and then more and then possible finding a faster route such as smoking it or IV injection. And then needing more money to do more oxycodone, then realizing heroin is cheaper, then doing more heroin then losing family and friends and all self worth. Will this happen to everyone who does this no it won't. Is it what i see everyday? Absolutely.
